Both R2 and Steve Y were extremely helpful in getting my registry settings back. Now i wish to make a backup ASAP. I've done ERDs (W2K) but never just a reg. backup. In the Tools provided by MS, there is a backup wizard. Of the 3 options listed in the screenshot, which one do I need?
I remember doing reg. backup in Win98 one time and I typed "scanregw". Does W2K have a similar command or does it work the same. I guess I could use the wizard but i'm not exactly sure it's what I need to do. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
There is no such command in Windows 2000/XP, the ERD has a copy of the registry, if you make a backup of the System State a copy of the Registry the COM+ database and the boot files are backed up also (it will take a lot more space but if you have where to back it up. it is a good idea to have a copy)
